Peoria fire investigators are waiting on an insurance company before doing tests at the scene of Saturday's fatal house fire.

37-year old Latwanda Isom died in the fire at 406 South Western Avenue.

The coroner say Isom died from smoke inhalation.

A portion of the first floor of her home collapsed in the blaze.

Firefighters say it had to be shored-up by a technical response team before an investigator could go in over the weekend.

The victim was carried out of the burning home and pronounced dead in an ambulance.
